FIREBRANDS Talisk have announced a run of 19 headline concerts, taking their explosively energetic live show to venues across the UK this November in what will be their biggest tour to date.

Following the release of their critically acclaimed second album Beyond, Talisk will be back on the road captivating audiences with a series of thrilling performances this autumn.

The trio have amassed a die-hard following over the past five years, been named Folk Band of the Year in 2017, awarded the Belhaven Bursary for Innovation (a prize matched only by the Mercury Award) in 2018 at the BBC Alba Scots Trad Music Awards, and collected in excess of 5.5 million streams online.

They will be headlining at, among others, the iconic King Tut’s in Glasgow, Liverpool Royal Philharmonic, Kendal, Cambridge Junction and London’s Kings Place Hall 1, following two consecutive sell-out years in Hall 2.

Mohsen Amini (BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards’ Musician of the Year 2018), Hayley Keenan and Graeme Armstrong seamlessly meld concertina, fiddle and guitar to produce a multi-layered, signature sound which has entertained audiences from the US to Australia.

“We’re coming straight out off the back of our best summer yet, playing main stage slots at some of the most respected festivals in the genre,” says Amini.

“Closing the Saturday night stage one at Cambridge Folk Festival, late night at Philadelphia Folk Festival, touring around Borneo, Canada, US, Spain, France, Italy, Russia, the Czech Republic, England, Scotland and going straight on to our debut tour of Japan after the UK. We’re excited and hope you are too!”
